˝a brent show to change my mind˝ might be this one

high energy, rocks as hell. grate versions of brb,hsf, estimated>eyes

i liked some of brent songs very much ( tons, light, home) and some i didn´t. it wasn´t brent that changed the dead sound. it was the compromising direction taken by the band, with the release of shakedown in 78 and he fitted in nicely when he later came in

i really loved brent´s additions to gd sound as much as i loved pig´s or keith´s.

ALL THE YEARS COMBINED

I didn't care for Brent's toy piano sound either but I sure loved his vocals, esp, when compared to Donna...and Brent could play very well...the sound is a matter of preference.

Still, you can't go wrong w/early Brent shows, esp. '79-'81.

here's 2 you should try:

1/10/79 and 5/1/81...both brilliant shows.

Not wishing to be blasphemous, but I actually prefer Pocky way to Fantasy (prefer Traffic), or Jude (The Beatles worst song, surely). But following up on the earlier keyboards discussion I loved all those interesting background sounds Brent added in his early years with the band.
